Bertie’s Big Adventure

Bertie accepts Queen Beatrice’s challenge to lead the bees to a new home. He has some big decisions to make with support from his family and friends.
As Bertie Bumble waits for his wing to repair, he makes special friends with Queen Beatrice – the Queen Bee of Honeywood Hive.    She tells Bertie of how the hive is growing and they will soon need to swarm and find a new home – making way for a new Queen Bee and worker honey bees.  Queen Beatrice trusts Bertie and she asks him for his help to lead her swarm to a new home.  Bertie isn’t sure he is strong enough for such a special job and he worries how his life will change if he moves away from his family.  Bertie’s family and friends remind Bertie what a special bee he really is and why he was chosen for this important job.  Bertie is reminded how important it is to have self-belief and demonstrate leadership skills when helping make a big difference.
